Sounds like you may have a bad starter.
Double check all wire connections to ensure no wires are loose. Also, the air filter could be clogged.
Hook up a battery tester, could be as simple as needing to replace the battery.

There may be a fault contact due to vibration check all the electrical wires and contacts if they are very well connected check corrosion point at contacts, use wd40 spray oil in the motor and contacts, there may be a fault in the carbon contacts to the rotor.

Lawn mover will not start, was flipped over

The clicking noise may be the blade hitting the side of the mower or it was not put on properly. It needs a balance to the aluminum flywheel on top of the engine. The blade adapter and blade provide this balance for the engine to run.
Good Day.

Yard Machine won't start

Maybe the Spring is broken in the housing, that is assuming you are talking about a problem with the pull cord. Your question is kinda vaque. Submit more information !
